Deep-sky Tours


Each season offers a unique collection of deep-sky treasures. These tours throw a spotlight on these magnificent objects. The finder charts were created using MegaStar, Emil Bonanno's excellent charting program which is available through Willmann-Bell, Inc.. You are welcome to print them for use at the telescope. There are sketches of each object to give you an idea how they might appear through moderate aperture. Go ahead, check out my favorite seasonal deep-sky tours.
